Take Action _ Do not wait; the time will never be \"just right.\" Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. _ Napoleon Hill. Often times we say that we will accomplish our lifetime goals after we accomplish some other less important goals. Remember, there is never a better time than right now to do something, no matter what it is. America did not gain its freedom by waiting for the \"right time\", and neither will you. Why not begin today on making a better life for yourself and loved ones?
Measurable and Time_bound? I don\'t think it would be possible to undertake research on something that had no measure nor a time restriction _ how would you know that you had achieved success if there was no measure, and if there is no time limit, when would you stop measuring or even not measuring. So these remain \'common sense\' though a post_modernist might disagree. So there is support for the concept of SMART goals _ now why is it so important that we \'write\' them down? There are some who suggest that writing something down increases commitment to the goal but the evidence is anecdotal. For some individuals, the act of writing something down assists clarity through a conscious process because they consider something written to be a personal commitment. Does that mean it is true for everyone? To help answer this, we undertook primary research to mirror the mythical Yale Study. Through a simple questionnaire, respondents were asked if they had set goals for themself on leaving school, college or university, when this was and if they had written it down. They were then asked to estimate their total personal wealth now. The results are quite shocking.
